Trump capitulates to new administration

After two months of voter fraud claims and court procedures, the 45th president of the United States has finally admitted defeat. This was declared less than a day after Congress validated the Electoral College results.

 “My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power,” announced Trump on his Twitter handle.”Now Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th.”

However, this announcement had a clear disparity to his statements made on Wednesday, urging thousands to go to the U.S Capitol to disrupt the joint meeting of the Congress certifying the results of the Electoral College. After a crowd of about 1000 people started a violent protest outside the building, he condemned the actions of those involved.

“Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness, and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders,” said Trump

Four civilians and one police officer died during the protest. Following this, two cabinet members and several others handed in their resignations, showing severe disapproval.

On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi called Trump “a very dangerous person who should not continue in office.” She stated that he must be immediately removed from office. “I join the Senate Democratic leader in calling on the Vice President to remove this President by immediately invoking the 25th Amendment,” said Pelosi during a news conference. The 25th amendment allows a cabinet majority to replace a president if deemed unable to discharge his/her duties.

International leaders took to Twitter to express their objection towards the recent episode.

President-Elect Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States on 20th January.
